I never knew there was a difference between hard boiling farm fresh eggs and hard boiling eggs that you buy in a supermarket. All I knew is that I wasn’t very good at hard boiling eggs… period.

Up until about 2 years ago, I really didn’t know how to hard boil farm fresh eggs or any kind of eggs for that matter.

I was boiling my eggs and usually throwing away half of the whites because they would be stuck to the shell. I finally got fed up with it and decided there must be a better way.

And so I began my search to find the best way to hard boil farm fresh eggs.

So I sat at my computer, probably like you did to get here and typed into the all knowing google search engine “how to boil farm fresh eggs.

Let me tell you, I ran across a bunch of different ways claiming to know the secrets on how to boil eggs so they peel easily.

Most of them were pinterest fails. Yup. The eggs were either cooked too long, or I lost half of the egg when I went to peel them.

So this Wednesday I got my hair done (thank you Mel, I was in dire need) and I asked my hair dresser if she had any extra eggs. She has the cutest little chickens in her back yard and they are super kid friendly.

I was in luck. She had a couple extra dozen eggs, so I gladly took a dozen off her hands 🙂

How to Boil Farm Fresh Eggs

First get a large sauce pan with a tight-fitting lid. Next put desired eggs in the saucepan. Then fill the saucepan with room temp water about 1 inch above egg.

After that, add 1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar. You may also substitute for white vinegar. Next, cover saucepan and turn on high. Then bring to a boil (covered) and boil for 1 minute.

Next, completely remove from heat for 1 minute (Leave you burner on high and place saucepan off to the side). Then add the saucepan back to heat and boil for 1 minute.

Next, turn the heat down to simmer and simmer for 10 minutes. Still don’t remove lid.

After 10 minutes remove the saucepan from the burner and drain off the water. Put cold water and ice in the saucepan.I tend to put 3-4 cups of ice, just enough to cool the water down so the ice isn’t completely melted

After about 10 minutes, remove the eggs from the ice bath and start shucking, and shuck them all immediately or they will be full of craters.

How long are hard boiled eggs good for?

Before drying out and becoming tough, the best hard boiled eggs are eaten within a week of boiling.

How long do farm fresh eggs last?

Farm fresh eggs can sit out at room temperature for about a month before they need to be refrigerated. But if it’s maximum flavor and freshness you want, I would recommend eating them within the first 2 weeks.

Do farm fresh eggs need to be refrigerated?

If they have been washed, farm fresh eggs should be refrigerated to keep them fresh and protect them from bacteria. This is because when washed, the protective natural coating (bloom) on the eggs is stripped, leaving the fresh eggs vulnerable.

If your farm fresh eggs have not been washed, they can sit at room temperature until you are ready to eat them, or about a month before refrigeration is recommended.


Since I originally wrote this post, I bought an Instant Pot – and wow is it a life changer!

You can actually cook farm fresh eggs perfectly in the Instant Pot which is way easier than this method if you have one or a different pressure cooker.
